Head of Planning & Economic Development

£67,259 - £78,818

Chiltern and South Bucks present a unique professional opportunity of significant scale. This is a chance to join two of the country's top performing councils and play a lead role in managing high profile projects that include: airport expansion proposals, HS2, superfast broadband rollout and major capital projects, including affordable housing schemes and new community infrastructure.

The emphasis will be on consolidating what we already do well, sharing skills and experience across a newly combined team, and shaping a modern, customer focused Planning Service. Strong leadership, relationship management and commercial skills will be vital. You'll help to define the tone, culture and expectations of the new team, setting direction, and bringing people with you. If you can bring energy and innovation, coupled with the stakeholder engagement skills that working across two councils demands, then this could be your opportunity to take your career to the next level.
